Supported Linux distributions

To be fair, there are so many Linux distributions that we have not tested them all. We simply do not know if they all work or if there are any issues. When you are trying a Linux version which is not listed as supported then please contact the support desk. We like to know when something new is tried, if it works, and how well.


The following Linux distributions have been tested and are reported to be functional.

  • Unbuntu
  • Arch
  • Debian

Supported Mono versions

To make the HTS platform work on Linux we are using the Mono framework. Since recently Microsoft has taken over the development of Mono and are pushing many updates, some updates work and some updates can give issues.


The following version of Mono have been tested and are reported to be functional.
v5.0.1.1
v5.12.0.301
v5.14.0.177
v5.16.0.179

Installation

Install the latest version of mono available. You can find details based on your linux distribution here.

You can also use the below guide, but it may install a version much older than the above link.

Pre-installation of the Mono framework

apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mono-complete mono-vbnc


The installation itself

tar -zxvf linux32.tar.gz


This is how we can start the haasbot

bash Haasbot.sh


To confirm its all working, enter

netstat


... and then HTS should be listed on port 8090 and 8092.

Having issues? You can also start HTS in debug mode to see details printed directly to the console, like so:

mono-service --debug --no-daemon -l:HTS.lock HTS.exe -debug

Setting Up HTS

Now you are ready to Enter your license key
